About Sharon and SEQTA -

SEQTA

SEQTA was started in 2006 at the kitchen table by husband and wife team Grant and Sharon Grosser. In January 2017 SEQTA Software was acquired by Education Horizons Group. Under the EHG umbrella, SEQTA is part of the largest wholly-Australian owned K-12 school education software business in the country.

Prior to co-founding SEQTA with Grant, Sharon was a secondary English teacher. A self-confessed late adopter of technology, she nonetheless shared Grant’s belief that the teaching profession deserved the best industry specific software technology could deliver.

Sharon was pivotal in SEQTA’s growth from kitchen table start up to thriving business. Depending on the needs of the company she has undertaken a variety of roles including Operations Director, CEO, and Director of People and Culture. Her entrepreneurial success was most recently acknowledged when she and Grant were named Western Region Winners in the 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

By the end of 2015 SEQTA was sufficiently resourced and mature to allow Sharon to step back from the day-to-day running of the business. She now divides her time between coordinating SEQTA’s Innovation program and assisting the Perth Startup community through mentoring and advocacy.
